Forecast Project Methods

Hello experts,

Can someone please help explain the different methods (i.e. Diagnose, Select, Fit, Forecast) when selecting reforecast... in Forecast Studio. Please explain how each method is different the other, what does the system do, etc.

I read the help on this and still not clear.

Much appreciated.

Re: Forecast Project Methods

Hello -
You might want to check out this whitepaper by Mike Leonard: Large-Scale Automatic Forecasting Using Inputs and Calendar Events (www.sas.com/reg/wp/corp/3478). In my opinion it provides a nice high-level description of the automatic forecasting process implemented in SAS Forecast Server.
Hope that helps,
Udo
